Gran Canaria may be primarily known as holiday destination for its sun-kissed beaches, but beyond the resorts, the island offers many peaceful and charming country and hill opportunities for walkers. The central area is protected as a Parque Natural, with lush green terraces climbing up to the rocky towers of Roque Nublo and Roque Bentayga. The walks also explore deep barrancos, extensive pine and laurisilva forests and the islands towns.
There are walks suitable for those of all abilities, ranging in landscape from coastal clifftops to the dramatic volcanic mountains inland. Walks venture through villages and towns, and up to the summits of the highest peaks on Gran Canaria. Also included in the book is a five-day coast-to-coast route on the GR 131. The GR 131 is an island-hopping long-distance trail stretching across all seven of the Canary Islands.
The guidebook not only provides detailed route descriptions, but practical information on how to make the most of your trip to Gran Canaria. Transport, accommodation, language, food, currency are all covered, along with geological, historical and cultural information on the many sights along the way.
